Letter from the Editor
We’ve all been there.
Those post-holiday, pre-spring blues can be a little anti-climactic.
Thankfully, because we’re members of the Plan community, we know that the spirit of giving is perpetual.
Whether you sponsor a child, give the occasional Gift of Hope or donation, empower a girl, or just stay informed and advocate for good in the world through our social networks, you never have to stop giving. This month, you can help us raise awareness about #FGM and join with us in putting an end to this violent practice.
Together, we plan to make a lasting difference in the world. That work doesn’t end.
We hope you enjoy the February newsletter!
